Who you movie fans asking for their favorite movies in a particular genre, then you meet usually on hundreds of different opinions. All the more impressive is the status that is Studio Ghibli has worked with anime fans: Each new film is the Japanese longed for and &# 8211; with a few exceptions &# 8211; celebrated. Time for a conclusion: What are the best Studio Ghibli films of all time?
&# 8220; Studio Ghibli&# 8221; was established in June 1985 by Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki after the great success of Miyazaki's last film &# 8220; Nausicaä from the valley of the winds&# 8221; founded and published since at least every two years a new movie. The studio is occasionally associated directly with the western spread of anime itself. Often, the strips are also compared with the animated films from Pixar: Both studios are characterized in particular by the fact that their films are suitable for both children and adults.
However, Pixar's total child-friendly without question: Ghibli movies are not afraid to show violence in a very realistic way, if it is really necessary. This is all the more intoxicating in connection with the often fantastic creatures: When a beautiful mythical creatures suddenly a body part is choppy and place colorful fairy dust shoots dark blood from the wound, which is pretty unusual for a Western audience.
Before I start with my personal list, I have to make some restrictions. Unfortunately, I have until today namely &# 8220; My Neighbor Totoro&# 8221; and &# 8220; the Fireflies (Grave of the Fireflies)&# 8221; not seen two of the most popular Ghibli films.
I have not even a good excuse &# 8211; now both films are designed in the great &# 8220; Studio Ghibli Blu-ray Collection *&# 8221; appeared &# 8211; and will update accordingly speak this product as soon as I was able to see the quality myself. Until then, you are of course invited to list your own favorite movies of the studio in the comments.Start Photogallery(6 images)Studio Ghibli: To honor video games and fans Anime Forge
The best Ghibli movies: 5th place
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
If you take it exactly is &Nausicaä; # 8220&# 8221; no Ghibli film because the studio is the first place originated as a direct consequence of its success. However, since Miyazaki was responsible for the creation and direction, it is now generally counted as the first film of the studio and also appears in the official Blu-ray Collection.
Indeed, many issues that should dominate the subsequent anime studio are already taken for the first time here. As a pacifist Miyazaki often treated the futility of war and combines this in the case of &Nausicaä; # 8220&# 8221; with a plea for the preservation of the environment.
1000 years after an apocalyptic, seven-day war, humanity is still recovering from the consequences. A large part of the earth is called by a toxic Pilzwald, &# 8220; the sea of putrefaction&# 8221; , Periods covered in the partly gigantic insects their existence. While the people of the Valley of the Winds leads a peaceful life, the nations fighting Pejite and Torumekia to the last, remaining Titans &# 8211; one of the fighting machines that came in the seven-day war used. With it they want to burn the sea of decay, so to take back control of the earth.
&Nausicaä; # 8220&# 8221; is a highly complex film that literally makes his sometimes cruel illustration of the war between Pejite and Torumekia no prisoners. The disgusting looking, menacing mosquitoes to turn out only as a last line of defense for the sea of decay, provide the historical background for some very effective surprises. It could hardly have to be a better application film for Miyazaki.
